“ Brand: Max Factor / Type: Mascara / Suitable for: Eye / What it does: Smoothes, „
I purchased this product 3 weeks back from my local chemist at a very reasonable price of 3.95.I was told by the sales assistant that it was the best seller. I found that the mascars wand was too small for my eyelashes and took a long time to apply compared to my Christian Dior.I also didnt find that the mascara stretched my eye lashes as it said it would. Infact, i found they stayed the same length but were only thickened by the clumpy consistency. I had to comb through my lashes with a fine comb as the mascara was very clumpy and clogged. However, I did find that the mascara was good in the fact that it did not smudge and was very durable.It was also easily removed with eye makeup remover and was not stubborn as some are.
I use max factor s-t-r-e-t-c-h mascara and even though I dont wear make up often I have found that this product does give you long lashes even though I have long lashes already. I find when I wear this mascara my eyelashes really stand out as well as my eyes which stand out anyway.I have used several mascaras over the year and have found this one to be the best. I trust max factor as it has been around for a while and make up artists use it.Although this product is not waterproof or smudge proof I have gone out in the rain and rubbed my eyes and never smudged it.I think the price is a little high but I expect this because max factor is a top name.
Normally I would use mazzy and then eyelash curlers for that extra definition. But with this I can throw my babaric metal thing away. (I was never good with that thing). When you apply this mascara from the root of your lashes it stretches them and gives a nice natural looking curl. I've never taken much notice of various mascaras, I'm normally a 'any type will do' kinda girl, but this makes a huge difference to your face. As they say your eyes are the window to the soul so you want to have nice blinds!! I think this product is great except, I would recommend that you keep it in a cool place coz mine went a bit lumpy due to the heat from my computer in my small room. (oops)
I am lucky enough to have real long eyelashes. But to accentuate them I have always had to put a few coats of mascara on, which has ended with them looking thick and over made up. When I discovered I couldn`t believe it one coat and may lashes look just as I want them too. It doesn`t clog, it leaves lashes looking smooth. It`s really good, I don`t look like I have caked it on anymore. I`m glad I found this as it`s quicker getting ready these days. Comes in nice packaging and different shades. GOOD STUFF.
Like Genie I am in possesion of a Max Factor Stretch mascara. My usual mascara was drying up and I happened to be in my local chemist and this was on Special offer, so I thought, I need a mascara,I`ll give it a try. It is good, you can really see it on your lashes. It does actually do what it says...give you `long luscious lashes`. I use eyelashes curlers first, but I find this seems to straighten them again,so what I do is I put the mascara on first wait for it to dry, then curl them. This works & they look good. There is no need for two applications when you are rushing, one is good enough. Although it goes on as good as my regular one, it does seem to stand out more....as if it`s blacker? It is hypoallergenic, but not smudge or water resistant, but I have not found this a problem, only if I forget myself and rub my eyes...for whatever reason. And it is very easy to remove at the end of the day. I would tell anyone to try it out as it is good.
If, like me, your lashes aren't up to much, you could do alot worse than use the Max Factor Stretch Mascara. I discovered this after going for a make-over at a Boots store. (You just see the consultant and find out when you can be made-up.) She used this mascara on me and the difference was amazing. My eyes looked fabulous! To be honest, my whole face looked like someone else, but someone who was a whole lot prettier! But my eyes really stood out. I have no clue as to how it does it, but they appeared to be about double the usual length. Imagine the result if you have decent lashes!!! Wow! Not that you smell mascara, but it does smell revolting. But hey, it works! It comes off easy, as it isn't a waterproof, and if you get hot, it can smudge a little. To help combat this, don't apply any moisturiser around the eyes before you put your make-up on. If you get any on your lashes, it will literally slide off.
